What are the advantages of a web-based pay parking system such as Came?s PS ONE?
Came parking systems PS ONE is a high end web-based solution for pay-parking with multilevel and reserved parking facilities. Modular, versatile, simple and intuitive, it is made for maximum connectivity and system integration. It offers easy, simple and safe parking management.
PS ONE exploits technology by making native ETHERNET interface devices. Its advantages are:
? The system lets you configure unlimited peripherals, such as automatic cash registers, entry and exit units, pedestrian monitors, and staffed pay stations. All these devices, connected to the Ethernet network running TCP/IP protocol, are managed through a central server, to which any number of devices can be connected.
? It is a modular solution especially engineered to meet the typical needs of small, medium and large parking facilities. It makes connecting to an Ethernet network extremely versatile as it can be done via optic fibres, WiFi connections or even mixed solutions.
? PS ONE features a Plate Reader and an OCR module for reading and recognizing license plates. It digitizes all license plates, including ones in Arabic. The Eye System module can associate, at each vehicle?s entry and exit, high definition images of all four sides of the vehicle. If needed, with a simple license plate or ticket search, the supervisor on duty can view previously recorded HD images, which is useful in applications such as to check for any vehicle damage claims.
? The SNMP protocol is used for remotely reaching the system and receiving & sending information or system-status notifications. This enables remote management of the parking system, or just monitoring the system or quickly responding to an emergency call. Each event is monitored in real time, enhancing service efficiency, while also controlling operating costs and transit safety.
? The automatic PS ONE cash register can manage all main modes of payment. Fitted with the latest generation displays, which are very simple and quick to use, it manages payments in the local currency with either coins or bank notes. To cut down on system supervisor intervention, the automatic cash register can be fitted with a change returning device for coins or bank notes, both of which are self-loading. It can also take all major credit cards and debit cards in the various international circuits. Customers can also pay with the more recent, innovative payment systems, such as NFC – Near Field Communication so that one can pay via cell phone or proximity card.
? The advanced PS ONE system lets those managing it boost productivity in their facility with specifications and agreements, discount packages with simple complimentary vouchers or with mobile devices, tablet PCs, smartphones etc. To this end, all PS ONE units can be fitted a 2D barcode reader. With rechargeable pre-paid cards, we can also custom-manage drivers who have registered for parking.
What is the outlook and market for automated pay parking systems in India?
Today India is moving towards intelligent transportation systems which is broadening the space for smarter ways of parking. The ongoing and upcoming smart city projects across India are creating business opportunities for smart parking management systems.
The high growth rate in the number of vehicles is expected to enhance the business potential of the parking management industry. License Plate Recognition (LPR) – based technologies are gaining high popularity in the parking management sector. The major LPR-based parking management solutions such as Automatic Vehicle Identification (AVI) and Pay-by-Plate are expected to experience high adoption rate, reducing the market share of the traditional technologies used in parking access control and revenue management.
Some highlights of the research and major products developed recently?
